MERZ0003 - Arnold Layne - hunting bears with a tiny fork, EP
Noise. Disconnected notes. Screamy organs. Sloopy strings. Pop flashes. Words told in a ironic way. Naked sounds. A musician terrible naif. Arnold Layne (the alter ego that hides the identidy of the musician), finds in Pop music from 70s and 80s a spark for his criation, adding distortion, abstraction and a non-convencional production. Behind his shy and fragile voice, therere a whole set of stories that dive us into an abstract reality presented by the 5 themes of his debut EP titled Hunting Bears With a Tiny Fork, labeled by merzbaus netlabel.
